UKIP Beat Tories to Second in Wythenshawe

The Guy Newsroom is celebrating last night’s by-election result after wagering a four-figure sum on UKIP coming second. The result was never in doubt and Mike “I’m perfectly happy Ed Miliband is leader” Kane is Labour’s new MP.

Labour: 13,261, 55.34% (+11.21%)

UKIP: 4,301, 17.95% (+14.51%)

Conservative: 3,479, 14.52% (-11.03%)

Liberal Democrat: 1,176, 4.91% (-17.44%)

The Lib Dems lost their deposit for the eighth time since 2010…

    Came in to work today, bit bleary eyed after last night’s celebrations and nearly tripped on some champagne bottles left in the corridor, not to self; contact H&S to pick them up and issue further guidelines.
    Still, best get on with the Today programme after we… I mean Labour … won the by-election.

    So it was decided some time ago and this is an affront to democracy.

    It didn’t happen, no mention in the ‘Wail Online’ and all comments closed in the ‘Torygraph’. I suppose they have to canvas their bossess in Central Office for excuses first.
    No sign of any Limp Dims on the TV, and no mention of the massive postal vote.

Tories need to get rid of the boy David if they wish to hold onto power because (a) Nigel won’t deal with him, he’ll just wait ’til the following election to take power totally after Millipede ducks a referendum and re-*ucks the economy and (b) people have seen through Cameron, a vacuous social democrat more concerned about losing votes from the less-than-3%-of the population falling under the jim-davidson description of shirt-lifters than catering to the vast majority who either don’t care or, at worst, are mildly offended by their chosen life-style.

    In the days when I was ‘politically active’ in my constituency, it was a very difficult and complex procedure to secure a postal vote for anybody. Only people with a limited number of genuine and provable reasons, could secure one and some for only a limited period i.e. working away from home. Others were, the very sick, elderly/infirm, armed forces etc. Different forms, different proofs required. It meant that only those entitled to vote could vote.
    Liebore destroyed that particular guarantee of fairness and democracy for it’s own cynical purposes.

    Anybody can have one. I do and am quite fit enough to get on my bike to the polling station. Just means that I don’t have to be around on that day if I am doing other things.

    Doesn’t seem right though. I think that you should only vote at the polling station with ID. postal votes should only be for those that are unable to get there on grounds of ill health and a docs cert is needed.

    The Great British Public says:

    If Cameron wasn’t such a bad liar and didn’t look so insincere all the time voters might forget his treachery and bad policies, unfortunately his fat lying arrogant privileged face spouting cast iron lie after cast iron lie means the public simply don’t trust this dishonest man and will not vote for him.

    Cameron is a real problem for the conservatives, ordinary hard working families dislike him intensely because of his lies. It is difficult to see there is anything ‘cast iron’ can do to remedy that.

    A reasonable man would assume the 1922 Committee appreciate this now ?

    Whilst pretty stupid, they can see when a person is lying, arrogant and insincere, and they are simply not prepared to vote for him.

    Cast Iron has a credibility issue we cannot be solved and if he remains, will mean the Tories are out of power for the next 15 years.

    For UKIP to do so well last night, they must be appealing to traditional working class voters up north, as much as they do to traditional conservatives down south.

    Building on a broad popular base of support is quite powerfull stuff.

    It makes the Conservatives and Labour parties seem quite divisive.

    The Labour Party needs to perpetuate poverty, welfare dependency and ignorance. That’s where their votes reside. Hence the importation three million new voters from the third world?

    Since Labour gained control of education and the BBC they’ve had powerful propaganda and indoctrination machinery at their disposal and funded by their victims.

    The Tim “Nice But Dims” just stood by and allowed it to happen, and have now virtually thrown in the towel.

    With the exodus of the wealth creators to friendlier regimes, one wonders how long the Fabian dream can support itself. I guess it will last as long as they can keep printing and borrowing money, cause one thing is for sure, you can’t print or borrow wealth and when there is no one left to steal it from the game’s up and the moochers will have to find alternative means of support.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
